Engine Mechanical problem
1997 Mitsubishi Eclipse 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 170000 miles
I own 1997 mitsubishi eclipse, 2.0 DOHC non turbo automatic, 170000miles.
Im trying to figure out why my car just shuts off in the middle of driving it.
The car would start with no problem at all, and as long as I leave the car in P park It will run forever with no problems at all, But as soon as I shift to D drive and drive the car for about 30 seconds It shuts off instantly as if I turned the key to the off pisition.
I did the alternator check when u remove the positive battery post while the car is running, and sometimes it shut off but not all the time. A new alternator has been put on the car but still the same problem, so I got a new battery too, and as im driving it with the new battery, car shuts off after a long time now, but before it shuts off the check engine light comes on and the battery light comes on.
do any of u know whatthe problem can be?
have the same problem?
